Bulldogs in Middle of Pack After Day One at Adams Cup

Newport, R.I. - After 36 holes at the Adams Cup - a tournament showcasing several top teams from up and down the East Coast - the men's golf team has shown they can play with anyone, finishing right in the middle of the 17-team field, tied with Binghamton for ninth overall. Captain Tom McCarthy posted the Elis' lowest individual score, finishing his two rounds at a combined 6-over, tying him for 16th.

Sophomore Bradley Kushner also had a strong day one showing for Yale, as did freshman Sam Bernstein, both of whom tied for 24th overall, 8-over on the day.

At a combined +35 through 36 holes, the Bulldogs find themselves 30 strokes off the 5-over pace set by the University of Central Florida, but just 13 behind Central Connecticut, who currently sits in third. The Elis will look to make up that ground Tuesday when they take to the course in Newport for the second day of the tournament.
